    I have just passed the sixth anniversary with this stove and I can't fault it. Really elegant and really well built. Gives out a lot of heat with minimal fuel. It's a multi fuel an we're really glad we made the investment.... []

    Had this installed in August 2010. The fire is a little on the expensive side, but then most of these are. The finish was easily marked by plaster but fixed with some stove black so no drama... []

    Stove expert replied: Flue draw will make a terrific difference to how the stove performs and it may be worth getting a flue specialist to advise if controlability continues to be a problem.

    Stove expert replied: If screw heads are no longer evident then the only option is to drill them out, not ideal after a years wear and tear. Might be worth going back to Stovax for their advice.

    We installed the Riva 66 approx 2 years ago. It has not come up to our expectations at all. The heat output is not as high as we were told, the fan is noisy and can be irritating if you are... []

    Stove expert replied: This sounds like a classic chimney problem rather than a problem with the stove. Any stove will smoke if the chimney does not draw correctly. As to the heat output I will not comment other than to say that stove heat outputs are tested in the laboratory but it is always best to ask your retailer their expert opinion when choosing a stove as of course a laboratory result is one thing and knowing how the stove performs day to day quite another. Choose a retailer with excellent customer service to start with rather than just thinking about price and you stand a better chance of getting the best advice in the first place and thereby saving time and money in the long run.
